A Message from the President
Welcome to the fall 2011 issue of The Scranton Journal.
We have many reasons to celebrate as a community, many for which to be grateful. For me, I am blessed and humbled by the responsibilities entrusted to me by the Board of Trustees to serve as your president. In the past several months, I have learned much about The University of Scranton, its students, faculty, staff and parents. I also have begun to meet alumni everywhere I turn and am awed by your abiding loyalty and unwavering support. There is, however, more to discover, and I look forward to taking this journey together.
This issue will give you a glimpse of campus life – ongoing progress on transformational projects, unprecedented success in our Pride, Passion, Promise Campaign, remarkable achievements by students and graduates, volunteer outreach in our community, and a host of concerts, plays, lectures and events. A highlight of our fall was, of course, Inauguration – a celebration of The University of Scranton.
As I said in my address, Inauguration marks “... a dramatic intersection of the past with the future, of our traditions and accomplishments with our hopes and aspirations.” I am filled with hope, confident that our great University will continue to provide a transformational education in the Catholic and Jesuit tradition. We can do something special at The University of Scranton. Of that I am very certain.
God bless you and God bless The University of Scranton.
Kevin P. Quinn, S.J.
